For smoking hot poetry!
A cover charge $5 (Only $5???) goes towards paying for the feature performer and prize money for the winner of the slam.
As always we’ll have an Open Mic for any and all types of performance; bring your guitar, your songs, your stand-up, your rants and ragtime show tunes – it’s all about getting it out there! Or you can always sign up for the slam, see if you have what it takes to reign supreme, and take home the cash prize.

BURLINGTON SLAM PROJECT IWPS QUALIFIER
feat. Cassandra Myers
Yeah, finals might be over. But you’d better believe we’re gonna have another big competition right afterwards. I’m talkin’ about the IWPS Qualifier! The slam to find out who will represent Burlington at the 2017 Individual World Poetry Slam! It’s gonna be another brilliant and hot competition, and we’re going to have a feature poet who can match just how huge the energy is going to be – Our recent Women of the World rep – Cassandra Myers!
Cassandra Myers has spontaneously emerged from the suburbs of the GTA as a youth spoken word artist. Her poetry is an intricate construction of her lived experience, drawing on her hard-learned lessons with heritage, sexuality, womanhood and family to create vivid imagery, getting you right in the feels. Her dedication to ever-evolving punchlines earned her the title of this year’s BAM! Youth Slam Team Captain. Twice leading teams to Brave New Voices, Cassandra has also swept slams at the College University International Poetry Slam and performed on Finals Stage at WOWPS 2016. When she isn’t rehearsing on subway platforms, Cassandra is taking on Toronto as a student at Ryerson University, where she is studying Child and Youth Care and continues her summer camp counsellor career. She loves loudly, eats constantly, and wants to be your best friend.http://www.theragdollsco.com/cassandra/
Bring a fiver and a friend, as always! We hope to see y’all out!
